IETY SHORT SERMOS BY Burgon, John William, 1813-1888FOLLOWIG THE COURSE OF THE CHRISTIA SEASOS. I TWO VOLUMES. VOL. I. P R E FACE. THE object wldcli the -writer had in view when he took in hand the following Sermons, is almost sufficiently explained by the title prefixed to his "Work. Many who observe the practice of oc casionally reading a sermon aloud to their house hold, are heard to declare that they can scarcely find anything quite suitable for that purpose. The length of most Sermons is a fatal objection. Some are thought too abstruse ; and some, too po lemical. Other Sermons, because they were writ ten for large and mixed congregations, are found unsuitable for private use. For whatever reason, discourses written for pulpit delivery seldom seem to be altogether in harmony with the calm tone of a Christian man's fireside. It appeared therefore to the present writer that he might be rendering a useful service if he at tempted a series of plain, practical Sermons for the Sundays and Saints' Days of the Sacred Year, of about half the length of ordinary Sermons. VI PREFACE. He Las been careful to urge such topics, (suggested generally by the Epistle or the Gospel for the Day,) as appeared most obviously to tend to edifi cation : avoiding everything of a controversial, or a party character. He is not conscious of having either intentionally borrowed his thoughts from
 
others, or of having gone out of his way in order to be original. To be practically useful has really been throughout the chief object of his concern. Two of these short Addresses, (the fifty-ninth and the sixtieth,) are the kind contribution of an abler hand. It may not be improper to point out, that al though Discourses written for a mixed congrega tion are generally not suitable for domestic read ing, short Sermons like these, expanded and ren dered somewhat more hortatory in their character, may easily be rendered available for the pulpit. Their usefulness, (if they are found useful,) need not be confined to the domestic circle. Oxford, October loth, 1855, COTETS OF VOL. I. Page SERMO I. THE ADVET SEASQJ.
